    Igntion switch. Went to auto zone and they had a replacement one for $5.70. I needed one because the key was broken off in the old one, and it was a real PITA driving around with keys on the floor. Plus I could start it with a screwdriver......
    Anyhow, I followed the easy directions. For about 35 minutes I followed the easy directions. I then modified the easy directions by using a straightened out key fob ring vice a paperclip, broke out the leatherman, and started tugging. That switch did not want to come out. I was about ready to call it a night (before I got the 5 lb sledge and chisel!) when I got it angled just right and out it popped. Happiness? Ayup.

    I put the new one in (slipped right in) and now I have a switch that works, and keys that don't fall out.
